Depends on what valve they are talking about. The Eldorado is a hard car to get to things. The emmitions control valve is the most probable cause of the light. You should be able to see this on top of the motor it has a tube going to it from the exhaust. You will need a new valve, gasket, and some basic hand tools.

The check engine light is not coming on when i start my 1997 jeep grand cherokee ?

Sounds like a few issues. The check engine light should come on when you turn the key to "ON" without attempting to start it. If it doesn't, the bulb could be bad and that would mean removing the instrument cluster to change the bulb.
The rough idle issue could be a partially stuck open EGR valve. Remove the valve and clean it good. While you have it out make sure the diaphragm moves freely. Replace the valve if you can't clean it or if it doesn't move.
Go to your local auto parts store and ask them to read the codes (most store provide this as a free service).

Emission control check engine light

The codes indicate a cylinder misfire on cylinders 3 and 6. Seems to be a common problem with that model. I would call the dealer and ask if there are any recalls or technical service bulletins on your particular car. Could be fouled spark plugs or bad valves or bad valve adjustment. There may also be a software fix but since the car is noticeably running rough I would suspect a hardware problem. Good luck.

Runs rough idle

your idle valve may be dirty or needs replacing would check this as it controls idle. sits on the intake with wires coming out of it.
